The second trailer for the most elaborate whodunit film since Clue has been released and it’s bringing mustache levels to new heights.
The new big-screen adaptation of Agatha Christie’s legendary novel, Murder on the Orient Express, is just a few months away from release, but we’re already getting closer to uncovering the probable murder of mysterious American businessman (ahem, gangster) Ratchett, played by Johnny Depp, aboard the train between Istanbul and London.
Luckily for literally everyone (except the murderer, or course) Christie’s famed protagonist, detective Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh), is aboard.
And he’s determined to uncover *what* exactly transpired on the Orient Express.
In addition to setting the scene for what appears to be a very gruesome murder, the trailer introduces us to our ridiculously star-studded cast of suspects, ranging from a princess and her maid to a doctor to a missionary. Joining Branagh and Depp in the film are Daisy Ridley, Penelope Cruz, Josh Gad, Willem Dafoe, Judi Dench, Leslie Odom Jr., Tom Bateman, Michelle Pfeiffer, Derek Jacobi, Marwan Kenzari, Olivia Colman, Lucy Boynton, and Sergei Polunin.
It seems, based on the trailer, that this particular ride aboard the Orient Express was nothing like your standard EuroRail or Amtrak ride as a series of mysterious events occurred in the time leading up to the fated murder. But it also looks like there’s a *lot* the strangers aboard the train aren’t sharing with Poirot.
According to Deadline, 20th Century Fox has inserted a clue into the trailer so hopefully eagle-eyed viewers are one step closer than the rest of us to solving the crime. Our money is on the famed detective, himself — just kidding, our beloved Poirot would never do that!
